I've been following the forum for a while and I should have joined sooner. I'm glad to be here.
I consider myself very lucky. For years I had wanted a small travel trailer and had a few casual conversations with my wife about getting one but had not looked for one seriously. Out of the blue a casual friend asked if we were interested in buying one he wanted sell. It was just a chance encuounter at exactly the right time.
While I new lots about fiberglass boats,My knowledge of fiberglass trailers was zip.
The trailer is a 17.5 Bigfoot
with center bath and it was about 15 miles from home. The seller was the origional purchaser and the trailer came with lots of extras as well as all the factory paperwork. The trailer had been in storage for 8-10 years and needed a good cleaning, new tires
and a battery
. The seller discovered the refrigerator
didn't work and made a price adjustment and we were both happy. Two days after my first conversation with the seller, the trailer was sitting in my driveway.
I have read some of the posts about fourm members search efforts and long drives to look at trailers. I'm lucky, mine found me.
My luck continued when I found this forum. I was looking for advise on RV refrigerators. Since then I've picked up lots of answers to questions by researching this forum.
My wife is Kathi and our dog is Jillaroo. We hope to meet some of the forum members sometime soon.
